. and they don't really have a real kind of panoramic or even a deep view of the real sort of granular shifts that have occurred in this country, that have been occurring. >> if you took that grand narrative and reduced it to a very short story, what is it? what's the plot? >> i think the plot is that there is an enormous gap between the way the country presents itself and imagines itself and projects itself and the reality of this country. whether we're talking about the latino community in north carolina. whether we're talking about a very active and i think in some ways very out queer community across the united states. or whether we're talking about an enormous body of young voters who are either ignored or sort of pandered to or in some ways, you know, kind of distorted, i think that what we're having is a new country emerging that's been in the making for a long time, and that in different regions we've already seen its face. but i think for the first time, sort of revealed itself more fully to the entire country. >> are there no honest mirrors reflecting back to us what you just talked
comes back to washington to resume fiscal cliff negotiations, we ask, what happens if they don't reach a deal? >> ifill: we talk with a representative of egypt's muslim brotherhood about the new brotherhood-backed constitution signed into law today. >> warner: and we have another of our conversations with retiring members of congress. paul solman sat down with the always outspoken massachusetts democrat barney frank. >> the notion that people would not go along with an important public policy because i hurt their feelings, i don't think that's true. >> ifill: that's all ahead on tonight's "newshour." >> major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: >> and with the ongoing support of these institutions and foundations. and... >> this program was made possible by the corporation for public broadcasting. and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> ifill: a major winter storm surged into the midwest and northeast, fouling flight schedules and ruining road conditions on this day after christmas. the huge weather system left a trail of destruction
in the 20th century. don't tread on us. get off our well-armed backs. there's nothing you can do. of course there is. register all guns, license all gun owners. require stringent background checks. get tough on assault weapons of any kind. crack down on high capacity ammunition, as the president has now proposed. then, enforce the laws. yes, i know. determined killers will always find a way, but we can minimize the opportunities and scale back the scope of destruction. why do we accept the need for driver's licenses or submit to the sometimes humiliating body scans at airports? because it's the law, and deep down we know we're safer for the inconvenience of the law. good laws are hard to come by. civilization, just as hard. the rough and tumble of politics makes them so. but democracy aims for a moral order as just as humanly possible, which means laws that protect the weak and not just the strong. lest we forget. >>> we've seen throughout our history what happens when politics doesn't work, when democracy breaks down. the greatest, most heartbreaking problem was the failure toll solve slav
should not have to wait and see is some sort of action so if we don't see an agreement between the two leaders in the senate, i expect a bill to go on the floor. and i've asked senator reid to do this, put a bill on the floor that makes sure that taxes on middle-class families don't go up. that unemployment insurance is still available for 2 million people, and that lays the groundwork then for additional deficit reduction and economic growth steps that we can take in the new year. >> all of this still developing. and we will have more on all of it with mark shields and david brooks later in the program. >> also ahead >> warner: also ahead, between now and then; protesting a gang rape in india; mass producing high quality education and remembering general norman schwarzkopf. but first, the other news of the day. here's kwame holman. >> holman: the u.s. economy has dodged a potentially crippling strike at ports up and down the east coast and gulf coast at least, for now. the longshoremen's union agreed today to extend its existing contract by another month. that word came after the unio
're not going away no matter what they do. >> ifill: they're being watched. i don't know that cory booker is being talked about for president but certainly chris christie ise they're being watched very y osely by national figures. >> absolutely. chris christie topped the lists. of contenders that republicans would like to see run. his favorability rating especially post hurricane sanda is quite high in new jersey.eyou republicans would like to see someone who is a little more, i guess, not a southern governor. someone from the northeast try again.th i think chris christie has an. better profile for that than mitt romney did. they would like to see him run again.ee cory booker, 2016 might be a little soon for him to run.li if he gets in the senate, he cae serve out a term change and tryt again maybe 2020, 2024. >> ifill: i want to know what bruce springsteen has to say. whatever he says goes. thank you both. >> merry christmas. >> ifill: thank you. you can watch the first part ofd our discussion about the latesta scramble for senate seats in two states. find that on our politics page. now
supporters of the referendum that any violations were minor don't affect the ultimate outcome. >> brown: okay, nancy youssef of mcclatchy newspapers in cairo, thanks so much. >> ifill: earlier today i spoke >> ifill: earlier today, i spoke with opposition leader, and coordinator for the national salvation front, mohamed elbaradei. he is the former head of the international atomic energy agency and a nobel peace prize winner. . >> ifill: thank you for joinings us. you called egypt to reject the -- what's recan to how it turned out? >> it is going to pass but it's a sad day in my view for egypt because it is going to institutionalize stability, very polarizing charter, defines a lot of the basic human value like treatment woman of religion, freedom of expression, so i'm not sure that this is the way forward. however, we would have to take it from there and i think that we treat that constitution try to get another assembly to work, that is not polarizing but establish a consensus among the two divided fraction of the society. right now we have educated middle class on one camp and the
hours. >> you don't hear people talking, well a year from now, we really need to be here. you hear, well we need to do that this week. we need to do that day after tomorrow. this short-time frame horizon is new and i think people who think we are going to have tax reform and entitlement reform next year are way, way off base. >> cutting short his vacation but it's unclear whether he has the power to force a last minute solution through a deeply divided congress. >> darren gersh. >> so, joe, how bad could that be? >> i had, susie. unfortunately, the economy has been gaining momentum, if you look at the labor market as well as housing making progress. but if we would see a fall from the fiscal cliff, it's not in our own estimates that those in the congressional budget office would be enough to impart a recession in the first half of 2013. i think still there's a 51% chance, if you ask me, that we avert the cliff but those are uncomfortablably low chances of success. >> we have seen some progress in the economy, in the housing sector, in the auto sector, in the job market. if we do go over
. move o most of that was in the commodities. as we go to 2013 it's hard to predict. i don't think we'll see labor stay war i where it is and thatl increase and the commodity as well. >> do you expect it to remainch. >> i do expect it to remainchea. the fed has made that commitment to the extent that you can call it a commitment and it's in the best interest of the continued recovery of the economy to keep mortgage rates low because housing is a vital component of employment and personal net worth. >> finally what about the homes. have you picked up on any changes o-for-consumer likes or dislikes in what consume earls are looking for in terms of the homes themselves. >> it's reasonable consistent.ie more in multigenerational living. a inlaw sweet for the parents. we are seeing a little more in terms of energy efis efficiency. we are offering more but it's not chosen as often as we would read about if you will. on the energy efficiency. and the mcmann shu mcmann shun t dead. we are selling single family homes with 100,000 worth of upgrades to the base price. it's remarkable in the down
into gift card sales. what most people don't realize is those sales get counted until the cards are redeemed. is that enough to save the season? >> not totally but you will have a decent season. around 70 percent of all gift cards are typically redeementd in the month of january. on average you will get consumers buying for themselves. they will take the gift card and add ton to it. that will be interesting in january to see if that happens. >> are there any retail stocks that you would get in and buy now. >> >> i think there are names as we look to 2013, whether it's van hues and the changes they are make to werner will be interesting. the continued growth with victoria's secret and bath and body works we will continue to see strength in michael cors as they expand their categories. you mentioned the overhang of the fiscal cliff, if that is resolved, will we see shoppers rush back to the malls. >> i wouldn't say rush but i think they will have more confidence in coming back to the malls and that will help us for easter, the march-april time period. >> dana telsey attach e. thank you very m
. >> a lot of people talk about value. the thing they don't talk about is affordability. so while you may think that sweater at barney's or nordstrom's is a value, at whatever price it is, you can't afford it. and affordability is something that is resonating a lot more than value. >> reporter: so the season is not expected to be a sparkling one for merchants, with gains in the low to mid single digits. discounters are expected to do better than luxury stores. but don't forget, it is the holidays, and christmas just wouldn't be the same without a few splurges. >> we kind of get in the spirit of shopping. we go, okay, okay one more, oh they'd really like that, he'd really like that-- and a little for myself, too. >> reporter: erika miller, nbr, new york. >> susie: don't let the fiscal cliff scare you away from buying stocks. that's the advice to investors from andy cross, the chief investment officer at the motley fool. tom hudson recently spoke with him, and began by asking if the s&p 500 will be higher or lower this time next year. >> that's a tough question. i'm not in the job of pickin
think we have been misinterpreting these stories, because the people who write them don't seem the least bit worried about their diversity. we see the problem, and then we want to insist that they're literal. i think we have misread the scriptures, not they have miswritten them. >> ( dramatized ): since many have undertaken to set down the events that have been fulfilled among us, i, too, decided, after investigating everything carefully, to write an orderly account. >> narrator: luke's gospel takes the separation from judaism one step further, because luke was almost certainly a gentile, writing for a mainly gentile audience. and the story he has to tell is how word of jesus reached the rest of the world. >> the jesus of luke is an enormously powerful figure. i mean, he comes on the scene as a prophet straight out of the hebrew bible. i mean, at his first appearance in his hometown synagogue, he quotes the prophet isaiah. >> ( dramatized ): the spirit of the lord is upon me. he has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go fr
the speaker and the president don't talk the negotiators do. >> warner: why late today did speaker boehner call for the house to reconvene on sunday? >> because he knows that there is going to be something probably to vote on and even if there's not the president has flown back, the senate is here, the country is watching. if you were the speaker of the house would you want your members to be seen as him on vacation zipping champagne on new year's eve and everybody else is in washington working. it's a combination of optics for sure, not wanting to be seen as off on vacation, but there is likely to be something that democrats muster to get voted on. it would have to probably get through the senate first but john boehner may need his members here. >> warner: now you heard mitch mcconnell refer to -- "we're happy to look at anything the president proposes." what is the president's role right now? >> well, the president ran on tax rates. the president right now, his role is knee deep, margaret. there have been other iterations of debt talks, supercommittee, where you saw the president try to
the neighborhood. >> we were kind of an odd bunch before, didn't plan to be hatters, as most people probably don't, and stumbled on it, really did. stumbled on it. and the story and the ambience and that's what took us. >> mike: the story is a familiar one: in 2009, battered by the down economy, the owner needed to sell, no one would buy. so the option was to shut it down, walk away, hat in hand. except in walked a preschool preschool teacher, two costumers and a bookkeeper, saviors in bright colors, with passion. >> we did it because, a, this place was going to evaporate if we didn't. nobody else was going to do it. the four of us are makers of things. we love the craft and we love old crafts and this was something that you can only learn how to be a hatter by apprenticing. so this is a skill that they're not teaching in school. see, this is kind of a taller crown. >> mike: what they will teach in school is how to run a business. classes they found and took to learn about price points, niche markets, branding, sourcing, business plans. >> business is a different language, you know? so i had to
